    Objects in InDesign files disappear when exported to PDF (CS5.5)

    lkh@GD

      I have some text that was created to outlines, filled and has a drop shadow applied. When I export the document to pdf, part of the text (the fill) disappears, and all I get is the drop shadow. I tried changing to a non-spot color, I tried removing all attributes, and nothing seems to work! I also tried copying that artwork to the clipboard and pasting it into an Illustrator file (says it is too big to fit the pasteboard, which I verified sizes - and it should fit. I tried copying the paths and pasting them in Photoshop as a smart object... no luck either. What am I missing? Thanks in advance for any help!
